Students investigate the cells of the human body. in this biology lesson, students discuss the cell as the basic unit of lie and identify how many cells the human body is made up of. They relate the semiconductor to their investigation as it is an essential part in the medical field and helping to improve the health of the body.
Students record their personal medical history. In this medical history activity, students practice completing a medical history form. Students write with a purpose in this lesson.
Learners participate in activities simulating various disabilities. After discussions, they work in teams to devise or improve on adaptive devices for people with disabilities. They include drawings of the tools they design and explain how they work.
Students analyze how medical devices that help the human body function. They work in pairs or groups to draw multiple views of the medical device and describe how engineering is used by biomedial engineers.
Young scholars see how widespread medical myths can be potentially dangerous. They synthesize their knowledge by creating pamphlets that help patients learn the facts behind some commonly believed medical myths.
Students engage in a lesson that is focused upon the survival of populations located in third world countries. They conduct research using a variety of resources while focusing upon the delivery of healthcare with the help of statistics.

They interview people in the community on their opinions of the new technology as well. Consider reading "The Veldt," too! 
Students discover advances in biomedical technology such as transdermal delivery and other non-invasive procedures. In lab activities, they examine how medication is given and how molecules travel, observe electrophoresis, and conduct several experiments in groups. In another activity, students inspect how drugs are delivered through a stent and how catheters and angioplasty balloons are inserted.
Students examine the discipline of biomedical engineering or bioengineering. They complete worksheets by participating in reading background information and completing a hands on activity. They design a prototype of a cast to set a broken bone.
